Collicola Palace

Palazzo Collicola, known as the “G. Carandente ”, is located in the historic center of the city of Spoleto. Palazzo Collicola is one of the most important noble buildings built in the city by the architect Sebastiano Cipriani. Inside the building it is possible to admire the frescoes, the stucco decorations, some of the furnishings and the large windows. In particular, the splendid Gallery decorated by Michelangelo Cerruti with allegorical figures is emphasized. The Museum was inaugurated in 2000 and named after Giovanni Carandente (art critic and historian). The museum collection is made up of works between 1953 and 1968. The collection includes works by internationally renowned artists, such as: Carla Accardi, Alberto Garutti, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Fausto Melotti, Pino Pascali and many others. One of the most important rooms is dedicated to the American artist Alexander Calder with his monumental sculpture “Teodelapio” created in 1962. Another significant room concludes the entire tour: the “Wall drawing” by Sol LeWitt, an American minimalist artist. Outside the palace are the sculptures of Isamu Noguchi and Richard Serra. Of great interest is the exhibit of the Library annexed to the museum concerning the themes of modern and contemporary art.
